Abstract : Candidate filament materials were selected from a list of high modulus-to-density ratio materials. The list was compiled from presently available literature. Materials selected to be investigated had a modulus-to-density ratio of greater than 2.50 x 10 to the 8th power per inch. Of the materials selected, boron, boron carbide, and titanium carbide filaments were deposited by vapor deposition techniques. To assist in the screening of the selected filament materials, a tensile strength tester was designed and built. Upon completion of calibration, the tester will provide a means to evaluate materials and deposition processes. (Author)
